Garmin is doing it again! They are comming out with the new 376c which will take the XM weather in the same box as the 276c.

I used the prototype last month offshore. Fantastic! Not just xm wx, but the headphones plug right in also.

My father in law said he wants one for his Harley already for his coast to coast cruises. Garmin definitely has the market on handhelds!

One thing that is not listed in the release notes is the furture software upgrade that will allow you to see traffic issue's on your GPS. If there is an accident ahead of you you will see an car wreck icon, there will be a tab in the system menu that will give you traffic tie up info and travel times for popular route.. simular to the Traffic and weather conditions on XM radio... Wait till Garmin releases the XM weather overlay for blue charts software on the home computer.. should be released near year end. Anyone who thinks Garmin isnt serious about the marine market is going to get left behind..

Barrett also they have the 396c coming out and is loaded to the hilt also

The GPSMAP 396 with XM WX Satellite Weather™ features Next Generation Radar (NEXRAD), Aviation Routine Weather Reports (METARs), Terminal Aerodrome Forecasts (TAFs), Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs), Lightning and Winds Aloft, and several other important weather products to help pilots make informed navigational decisions. This new aviation handheld continues to reduce pilot workload by displaying Traffic Information Service (TIS) data when interfaced to the GTX 330, and can channel frequencies with the touch of a button when interfaced to the SL30 nav/comm radio. The GPSMAP 396 is also capable of receiving XM Satellite Radio’s 130-plus channels of music, sports, news, talk, and entertainment programming through a subscription. Once on the ground, the unit continues to provide pilots with invaluable information in a car or boat via automotive or marine navigation modes.

What next? A plotter that reads minds or a fishfinder that guarantees fish!
